Manuel Pellegrini says the whole team played ‘really badly’.
Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini refused to discuss Joe Hart after a calamitous night for the England goalkeeper ended in a 3-1 Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich.
Hart, 26, was at fault for Bayern’s first and third goal, as City were out-passed and thoroughly outclassed by Pep Guardiola’s wonderful side.
England’s number one was beaten at his near post by both Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, and Pellegrini must now decide whether to keep faith with the former Shrewsbury player for Saturday’s Premier League clash with unbeaten Everton.
After the game, the Chilean refused to discuss Hart but admitted it was a bad day for the entire team.
“I will talk about the team, not individuals. We played really badly. It wasn’t the team that we see here every weekend and that’s the worst thing. It wasn’t a good day for us.
“It’s my duty to analyse the team and individual players. Of course we can all do better for the three goals, not only the goalkeeper, and you can’t afford to lose three goals to Bayern Munich because they are a good team.
“Of course I worry about the mistakes but this was not an easy game. Now it’s important to think about the future and also about solutions.”
